“Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I love it when I find these standing-stones out in the wild – it’s a comforting feeling knowing that someone else has marveled at the sights before you and has in some small way endeavoured to leave their mark on the world… their footprints in the sands of time.
